On February 13 at 3:31 a.m., Charles County Sheriff’s officers responded to 4125 Indian Head Highway in Indian Head for the report of a shooting inside an apartment.

As officers arrived, they were immediately flagged down by a witness who said the suspect, Latronda Marie Jackson, 33, of Bryans Road, was attempting to leave the scene in a car. Officers located the vehicle, initiated a traffic stop and detained Jackson. Officers went inside the apartment and discovered the victim, Eric Lamont Washington, 44, of Bryans Road, with a gunshot wound; he was pronounced dead on the scene. 

A preliminary investigation revealed the suspect and victim were in a bedroom at an acquaintance’s apartment when the shooting occurred. Detectives recovered drugs, drug paraphernalia and a handgun from the scene and are looking into the possibility the shooting stemmed from a dispute.

Jackson was charged with first-degree murder and remanded to the Charles County Detention Center with no bond.
